"time" magazine as 56%. there is great support in congress and senate at least among the american people for the president to do what he wants to do. martha: we have another poll we want to look at. it shows basically americans believe the most important thing is to protect the constitutional right of the second amendment to own guns. 51% say that. 40% say they think the most important part is to protect citizens from gun violence. just a quick thought on that, mark. we have to go. we have to break away to something live here. >> exactly. protecting americans from gun violence, the assault weapons ban doesn't do that we had assault weapons ban from 1994 to 2004. it expired in 2004. you know what happened? guns violence went down since the sought weapons ban expired. bill: the white house giving a bit of the theme for the speech. moments away in washington. martha: a major weather alert in part
and uphold our values through strengths of arms and rule of law. we will show courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peaceably not because we are 90 but because engagements can lift suspicion and fear. america " remain at the anger of a strong alliance. we will extend our capacity to manage a crisis and fraud. we will support democracy from asia to africa to the americans to the middle east. our interest and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. we must be a source of hope for the port, sick, marginalized, victims of prejudice. peace requires the advance of those principles. tolerance and opportunity. human dignity. justice. we the people declare the most evidence of sure that all of us are declared equal. just as they guided all those men and women we can not walk alone. our individual freedom is inexplicably bound for the freedom. it is our generation's path to carry on what those pioneers began. our journey is not complete until our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. our journey is not complete until ou

and uphold our values through strength of arms and the rule of law. we will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully, not because we are naive about the dangers we face, but because engagement can lift suspicion and fear. america will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe. and we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crisis abroad. for no one has a greater stake in a peaceful world than its most powerful nation. we will support democracy from asia to africa, from the americas to the middle east because our interests and our conscious compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the magicalized, the victims of prejudice, not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes, tolerance and opportunity, human dignity and justice. we, the people, declared today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal. it is the star that g
pushing one of his top agenda items. changing gun laws in this country. in his weekly radio address, president obama urging people to call their lawmakers. >> ask your member of congress if they support universal background checks and renewing a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and if the answer is no, ask them why not. ask them why an a grade from the gun lobby is more important than keeping things safe in a classroom. >> nbc's kristen welker is outside the white house for us. on the very last day of his first term we saw him out earlier working at that school for the national day of service. besides that, how is he preparing for the big day tomorrow and the bigger day, perhaps, on monday. >> reporter: craig, i can tell you that he's behind the scenes working hard on the big address that he will deliver on monday. in fact, a senior administration official tells me he has a strong working draft that you would expect just a few days out from delivering such a large speech, and i am told he's putting the finishing touches on that with his speech team h

definition when it's convenient. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. if that's what this bill does, it would fit the definition of amnesty. >> could your speaker survive if he allowed that bill to come to the floor of the house of representatives? >> i think we'd want to look at the language on that. john boehner's tone and his body language and everything i heard him say at the retreat in williamsburg, he and our leadership team was all about how we pull our conference together and work together. i don't think you'll see another bill come to the floor that's got that large a number of democrat votes we've seen in the past. i think it's going to be a republican agenda that he drives, and i think it's about unifying our conference. >> what about gun control? >> that's another situation that's rolling out in front of us. both of these issues, immigration and gun control, one of them, the immigration, was launched the morning after the election, before they actually analyzed the election polls. i think some republicans o

ahead and enforce the laws on the books, they've been pushing for that all along and they like that and plus, it was a couple of weeks ago, where wayne lapierre was excoriated on the airwaves for saying how dare him coming out and saying we should have more police officers or armed personnel in the schools. and now the president of the united states, in his initiatives have suggested that as well to put some more school resource people in the schools. so, that goes along with the nra as well. >> brian: right now we're waiting for the swearing-in ceremony nor vice-president joe biden to get underway, they're running a little late and we'll bring it to you live when it happens, even if you're in the middle of at pocket chair ad. does this look like a threat? a five-year-old suspended fr kindergarten because of this? we report you decide. >> looks like a hair dryer.

go to commercial break, let's take a look. there you see the -- the president's mother-in-law. gloria, they will be making their way here to -- to the capitol. as the -- president's aides get ready to get in the various cars. what part of the white house is this? >> i think we are looking right now at the north door. the president has been attending a coffee with congressional leaders, with senate leader mitch mcconnell. speaker boehner and congressman eric cantor. i confirmed that. with each of their offices. a nice bipartisan tradition and good way to kick off a new term. those of you discussing he does not do enough socializing with leaders, here he is doing just that. he's been with -- the wives, vice president biden and his wife has been there as has the first lady. they will then head in the motorcade and make their way up here to the capitol where they will go into a hold for about an hour before the president speaks. >> senator john kerry arriving at the capitol. there's senator kerry. >> confirmation hearings. secretary of state. >> this is the entrance you see usually in the
difficult to do but if that can be found, and i think we're going to have good immigration law. >> the president extended really an olive branch, if you will, before the inaugural address to republicans saying that he's going to try to reach out more, perhaps invite people over to the white house, whether or not he kind of joked about playing cards and golf and that type of thing. if the president were to reach out to you more in the second term, would you take him up on it? would you be a part of a group that would really try to break through some of the nastiness that we've seen in washington? >> of course i would. and i would give an example of my doing that as i tried to work very closely with republican and democrats in the congress and with the president the first nine months of obama care, trying to reach a bipartisan agreement. but we weren't moving fast enough for the president. he decided to go ahead on a part dan basis. so i got nine months there of working very closely. i can tell you, more recently, there's an inaugural lunch after his speech and i was invited to t
laws in this country. how much a part of the president's resolve will that be in the months coming? >> well, the thing -- the president always said that, you know, you have to do many things at once when you're president, and that's a very important thing. we can't keep replicating these tragedies and it's not just the big tragedies, but the small, smaller strategy dtragedies than the streets every day. so he's determined to move forward on this package of laws. they're not the only things we need to do. some of the things have less to do with government and more to do with what we -- what we do in our home. what our children play and in terms of video games and what they watch. but certainly we need to do something about guns. we are hopeful that we're at a moment when we can pass the impasse that we have seen in the past and really move forward on it. >> hey, david, bob schieffer here. >> hey, bob. >> in normal times, probably we wouldn't report this, but in these fractured times this just in as they say. i'm told that speaker boehner, eric cantor, the number two republican in th
